I had to get my key reprogramed and had to wait over 15 minutes for someone to come to the front desk. When the individual came in they smelled of pot, had red eyes, and seemed very high. On top of that, my heater was noisy and didn't work correctly and it wasn't fixed. I also wasn't given a new... More

My car broke down on a Sunday night right after we had checked in and was looking for a place to eat and the receptionist went above and beyond the call of duty to help me out with a rental car and taxi cab to get me to the rental place!!!!

Did not have reg bed spreads on the 2 beds. Got 2 blankets from the front office and BOTH had HOLES in them. One was unraveling. I wouldn't even let a dog sleep on them. The tub had thick black residue around the drain. We (3 of us) didn't even take a shower because of the appearance of the tub.... More

The place definitely needs some TLC. There was no drain stopper in the sink, and the place overall shows lots of wear. If it wasn't such a convenient location, we would not have stayed there. Others in my group had real problems with filthy rooms, and aloof staff. The staff was very nice in all of my interactions.

We Stayed at the Harrisburg Howard Johnson for years when we visit AACA Hershey. We always accept that the accommodations will be somewhat downtrodden, but it is a budet hotel and it keeps the costs down. This year however was the worst we have ever seen it. There were multiple plumbing issues, drainage issues, and our television never worked. Our... More
